(Newser) – As reported earlier, a venomous North Indian snake charmer got back at government bureaucrats the best way he knew—by releasing cobras in their office. The snake charmer told reporters he had been promised a plot of land for his reptiles two years ago by a district magistrate, but nothing had come of it because he couldn't afford to pay the bribes demanded. The Telegraph has video of the scene, in which workers fled from the building or leaped to the top of their desks. Police are still searching for some of the snakes.

That may work fine to motivate politico's in India but here in the US so many of them are such weasels they would have no problem at all devouring a bag of snakes... but it might be worth a try. ;-)
